Proof that the Royals aren't as lame as the Cubs




Yep.

Family Circus loves the Cubs.

And even though it is a comic strip, Bil Keane still refuses to incorporate any comic element into the strip whatsoever.

Seriously.

Where the hell is the joke in the above panel?

Please tell me that it isn't Ma and Pa Family Circus realizing that the kids didn't need all of the expensive memorabilia when a pack of Orbit would have satisfied them...

Even so, that isn't really a joke, now is it?

That is all.

Go Royals! You're not the Cubs!

    is it a lame play on the fact wrigleys make chewing gum? Not bad getting paid to make a joke that a six year old could think of.

    1. Ahhh, I bet you're right.

      I spectacularly overthought that one.

      Someday, that Bil Keane is gonna pay for what he's done to society.

  2. It's a safe bet that any thought on a Family Circus spot is an overthought.
